Lanhee Chen: The CCP Tightens Noose on Hong Kong

Chinese leader Xi Jinping is sending a message to Washington: Regardless of who is in the Oval Office, their authoritarian crackdown on Hong Kong will continue.

Beijing just passed a resolution permitting the expulsion of any Hong Kong legislators who aren’t sufficiently loyal to the Chinese Communist Party. Hong Kong’s chief executive, who is loyal to Beijing herself, immediately kicked out four legislators; prompting another 15 in the 70-seat Hong Kong legislature to resign a few hours later.

Xi and his allies are tightening the noose on Hong Kong, exerting more and more power over it. This latest action comes on the heels of a sweeping national security law passed over the summer, which installed more of China’s security apparatus in Hong Kong and significantly limited freedoms of speech and protest traditionally granted to its residents.

The Chinese Communist Party has made its intentions toward Hong Kong clear. It’s now up to the US, and our allies who believe in freedom and democracy, to stand against Beijing’s bullying.

Hugh Hewitt: President Trump and the Elites

If President Trump makes a comeback—and pulls off yet another upset victory on November the 3rd—it’ll be because he relied on the disgust of the elites.

Trump will again run on a platform of America first, and on rebuilding the economy he built once until it was shuttered by the novel coronavirus. He’ll point to his clear-eyed view of today’s aggressive and assertive Chinese Communist Party and the strengthening of our military build-up: a growing Navy, the Space Force and the revitalized nuclear deterrent.

Trump will also run on his massive deregulation, and the appointment of justices and judges who are faithful to the Constitution.

An often hysterical media endlessly chants the same anti-Trump refrains.

But voters have to ask themselves: Which man do they want squaring off against Xi Jinping, rebuilding the economy, appointing judges, funding the military?

Trump can embrace the disdain of the elites. And—yes—he can win again.

Hewitt: The Disdain of the Elites


If President Trump makes a comeback—and pulls off yet another upset victory on November the 3rd—it will be because he relied on the disgust of the American people with elites.

He’ll point to his clear-eyed view of today’s aggressive and assertive Chinese Communist Party and to the strengthening of our military build-up: a growing Navy, the Space Force and the revitalized nuclear deterrent.

Jerry Bowyer: China Is Both Wrong and Foolish in Persecuting the Church

Pastor Wang Yi of the Early Rain Covenant Church in China has been in detention for over a month now—along with his wife and dozens of church members.

Christianity has been growing rapidly in China, which apparently frightens President Xi Jinping. His fear is misplaced. Chinese Christians are good citizens and productive workers. Instead of fearing the growth of the church, Xi should fear the consequences of his own crackdown.

We’re engaged in a research project which shows the correlation between persecution and regime change. It’s abundantly clear: Regimes which persecute the Church are much more likely to be removed.

Since 2000, the 50 worst persecutors have seen a sky high 38 percent rate of forced regime change.

Just by numbers alone: If the Chinese government is concerned about losing power, the last thing they should be doing is persecuting the Church.
